There is no better way to start off the 2018 ski season but with a trip to Steamboat, Colorado!!! This trip has been a TSC and club favorite for years!  Steamboat gets an average of 349” of snow a year.  Whether you are a never ever or an expert, this mountain has slopes for everyone.  There are 16 lift systems and 165 named trails; 14% beginner, 42% intermediate, and 44% advanced.  The longest run is over 3 miles!!!

We have nailed down all the details for you…

We are flying American Airlines out of San Antonio to DFW, then onward non-stop to Hayden.  It is only a 20 to 30 minute shuttle ride from airport to resort.

We are staying at the Phoenix at Steamboat.  The complex was newly renovated in 2012.  Each condo has its own laundry room, a gas fireplace, and complimentary wi-fi. There are 4 people per condo and the slopes are less than 250 yards away.  After an exhilarating day on the slopes you can enjoy the outdoor heated pool, 2 hot tubs, and a sauna.  The resort also offers a shuttle to the grocery store close by and to downtown Steamboat Springs.

The mountain offers so much for skiers and non-skiers.  There is night skiing, snowmobile and dog sled tours, snow shoeing, gondola rides, and much more.

Beaver Creek is a luxury ski resort owned and operated by Vail Resorts, with 1825 acres of terrain for all levels of skiers and snowboarders:  19% beginner, 43% intermediate and 38% advanced.  There are 25 ski lifts and 150 trails on 776 groomed acres.  With its Birds of Prey downhill course, Beaver Creek has regularly hosted world cup ski races in early December.  Because of small differences in the microclimate it typically gets even more deep dry snow than its sister resort Vail, which is located about 8 miles away.  Beaver Creek is good for beginners, intermediates, bump skiers, highspeed carvers, spa fans and foodies.

The village has a European atmosphere, and there are heated sidewalks so visitors never have to walk around town in the snow.  Escalators are placed throughout the village so visitors don’t have to climb up and down stairs in ski boots. There is free on-demand shuttle service throughout the resort, and chocolate chip cookies are free at 3pm each afternoon!

The Charter condominium where you will be staying, is in the heart of Beaver Creek resort with ski in/ski out access, and within walking distance to Beaver Creek Village.

For those skiers and sightseers who like variety, there is a bus that goes to Vail, and lift tickets for three or more days can be used at both Beaver Creek and Vail.

Stay at Beaver Creek with your friends in Club St. Bernard, and have fun skiing while enjoying the benefits of the group travel discounts through the Texas Ski Council.   Because the travel and lodging arrangements are made for you, you can relax and enjoy the quaint village.

Enjoying this exhausting heat wave?  One way to deal with it is to envision yourself in beautiful Park City!  Plan to join us on this fabulous trip.  We only have 22 slots, so it’s best to sign up early and claim yours!  We’re still waiting to confirm the air, so the price isn’t yet set. 

We’ll have 3 mountains to choose from for skiing!  There’s Park City, of course, and you can also ski Deer Valley (sorry, no snowboarding there) and The Canyons.  Choices for everyone! 

Park City has a wide variety of skiing available from easy greens to eight deep powder bowls :  something for everyone.  With 3,300 skiable acres, you shouldn’t have trouble finding slopes you like.  And in case Mother Nature slacks in producing the area’s infamously perfect powder, they have a state-of-the-art snowmaking system that guarantees a fabulous skiing.

Deer Valley boasts an average of 300 inches of light, dry Utah powder annually!  They too have a wide variety of terrain, though there is more intermediate than other.  The Canyons has eight separate mountains and the most ski runs in Utah, with over 3,500 skiable acres, over 3,100 vertical feet.  They also have a wide variety of runs from open ski trails to gladed backcountry.

The town of Park City has hundreds of shops, restaurants, bars and clubs to keep you occupied when you aren’t skiing.  Historic Main Street has a unique charm that originates from its flamboyant mining town days, and the nightlife consistently ranks among the top of the nation’s ski resorts.

Not a skier?  You can visit a mine, ride the zip line or the Alpine Coaster, take a snowmobiling tour, try tubing, ride in a hot-air balloon and even try your hand at fly-fishing!  Yes, they have fishing trips in the winter.

Want something more cultural?  No problem!  There are art galleries, theaters (both movie and live), and an Air Force museum, too!  So no matter what your like to do, you’ll be able to find something that tickles your fancy.  Make sure you sign up early for this trip as it’s likely to sell out.  Please let me know that you’re interested!  For more information, contact Melissa Wight or Lizzie.
